    Hey all,

    I have been searching on and off over the last couple of weeks but have only been able to find references to the sportbacks.

    I am looking to re-wire my rear speakers as I have changed from the standard head unit and am getting the infamous cracking/interference/underpoweredness in the rear speakers.

    How do you remove the rear door cards to access behind the speaker? I know how the middle trim pops out but could not see any screws etc.. also I do not know how to completely remove the rear seats for better access, so if anyone is able to enlighten me I would be forever grateful!

    Thanks,

    Dec

    Just get your hands behind them & slowly prise them of as they're held on by spring clips & some locator round lugs that also hold it firm by pressing onto plastic studs on the car, some force needed.

    All sorted thanks, now just need to sus out what the best way to wire them is!

    Got the rear seats out too :) Bit of hard tugging on the front clips and it pops out then push it back slightly to unhook it from the rear clips

    Sorry guys, I'd forgotten I'd posted this!

    There literally isn't much more to it other than giving them a tug. I found it easier to remove the rear seat (pull upwards, there's a clip on each side a couple of inches in if I remember) and the trim along the edges of the doors that go through and into the back too.

    Once that's all removed I think you can get your hands underneath the rear card and pull. That's how I did mine anyway, just stiff clips! To get the middle trim out I just a screwdriver with a microfiber over it to protect everything and prised it out enough to pull that out too.
